By Charles Robert Lindholm


like a raptor chasing lunch

or a missile locked on target

zooming into you

would be so easy to do

it’s a basic instinct

of my gender


but I’m not

a hunter seeking prey

I’ve never ever

been that way


it’s attraction not promotion

like the moon upon the ocean

pulling waves upon the shore

you have to want what’s in my store


like a fire needs a flame

and a moth feels just the same

drawn by inner yearning

to a heart within that’s burning


racing to my light

is the proof

that it is right
